  1. No tail lights?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My B5.5 has been in the garage for about a year and I'm getting it back on the road. I've repaired a number of nagging issues (reason that I stored it) but now I have a new one - no tail lights. I have a Euro switch and all appears to work EXCEPT the steady tail lights when the switch is on...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I was sure I saw something about this here before, but I couldn't find it, so I'm sorry if this is a repost. I've been looking at body parts for my car, and I know for a fact that I'm going to be putting aftermarket headlights on it. Easy enough to find. Tail lights, however, are seemingly...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have a cracked tail light and purchased a used replacement. For the love of German engineering do I need to remove the shelf and Monsoon amplifier to get to one of the nuts?

I suspected moisture under the driver's side carpeting and it was definitely wet. I got everything...
